This past month we’ve been wondering ~ and even concerned ~ about the lack of news coming from our media about the war in Ukraine. We see we are not alone. This month, photographer and explorer of urban ruins, Phil Buehler, created a 60-foot-long photograph of Irpin’s car cemetery in Ukraine as a reminder that this war rages on. The mural, entitled ‘Irpin, Ukraine: Please Don’t Forget Us’ is located near the Ukrainian Museum and the St. George Ukrainian Church in the East Village, on view through November, 2023.
As part of its transformation into an arts center, the Deer Gallery will open on the second floor, with its inaugural exhibition, Steven Hirsch: Crispy Critters. Featuring nearly 40 paintings and drawings from 2020-2023 by the self-taught artist, the exhibition will be on view from May 25 to July 1, 2023. An opening reception will be held Thursday, May 25 from 6-8 p.m. The artist will be present.
The Brant Foundation is pleased to present Thirty Are Better Than One, an exhibition of over 100 artworks by Andy Warhol, at its East Village location. On view from May 10 through July 31, 2023, the survey spans the entirety of Warhol’s illustrious career, from his early drawings and intimate Polaroids to instantly recognizable silkscreens and sculptures. Thirty Are Better Than One pulls in large part from the Brant Collections, which includes an expansive and coherent selection of Warhol’s work. It is curated by Peter M. Brant, founder of The Brant Foundation and an early patron, collaborator, and close friend of the artist.
